Bentley is supposed to be a high school senior, but has shown great poise and leadership while leading the team to wins over Tennessee and Missouri the past couple weeks.

Meanwhilie, Florida’s quarterback in Luke Del Rio has looked worse and worse each week since returning from his knee injury he suffered in September. The offense has been atrocious and only mustered three points (seven came from a returned interception for a touchdown) against Arkansas on Saturday. The line will surely close as the week goes on, but that is a magical and inexplicable spread for that game.
